For what it's worth, this week marks a year since I started blogging for The News.
I've written about 340 posts, which have prompted some 2,700 reader comments and about 355,000 page views. I'm averaging about 2,000 page views a weekday, about quadruple when I first started Outrages & Insights.
Imagine that, growth in the newspaper industry.
I'm having a blast. Who knew that a vital component to journalism involved finding the right video on YouTube to drive home a point?
During my career, I've always looked to ride the next wave. Computer-assisted reporting back in the '80s and '90s, blogging and other forms of new media today.
Work with me, people. I've got to catch up to Roland Hedley.
